When my"therapist" at the local camera store told me he could sell me this lens for $100 I thought, "It's Olympus, how bad could it be?" So I bought it and took some time to set up a few test shots against the superb Olympus 14-54. The 40-150 performed beautifully, it's nice and sharp, and nothing I could do produced any fringing. The edges are plenty sharp enough, I just kept muttering WOW.

Focus and zoom seem on a par with the 14-54: smooth and fast.

Being 4.0-5.6 I guess there's not a whole lot of glass in there so the lens is very light. That can be an advantage when you need an all-purpose, compact, walk-around/travel lens. This is fast becoming mine.

One note: it has a plastic mounting flange, but the general build quality is solid. It doesn't come with a fancy case.

I believe it's the best $100 I ever spent on camera equipment!

Okay, it's inexpensive. The ring where it attaches to the camera is plastic. But, are you going to use this as a hammer? It is that very construction that makes this camera a heavyweight in the lightweight class, and at an affordable price.

Years ago, a lens with this magnification ratio would be unheard of (equivalent of 80mm to 300mm). My old Canon lenses with half that range (and no better optical quality) weight four times as much.

Oh, we are so spoiled in this digital world! Yet, I enjoy being spoiled.

You will not find a better lens anywhere for this price. You may not find a better lens anywhere for twice the price of this little gem. Other manufacturers "kit" lenses (the lenses often sold accompanying the camera body as a kit) are virtually throw-aways, something to get you through until you can buy their more expensive lenses. Not this one. Auto focus is good, color and other aberrations minimal.

Although I own and use some very expensive bodies and lenses, this lens is always in my car with my E-520 and the 14-42 lens. If a photo opportunity comes up, I won't be missing those cameras and lenses at home, because this kit will handle the situation with great aplomb.

I recently purchased the 40-150mm to keep on my E-620 as the "everyday" lens. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I am downright glad I bought this lens. It does not only deliver super sharp images with great detail, it is light and really "unobtrusive" -- you can put it in your cargo pocket and you won't even know it's there. And don't be fooled, this may be a "cheap" lens in dollar terms but it delivers one heck of a job! I shoot JPEG with little post-production fiddling. Between this lens and the minor fiddling (auto contrast, sharpen, saturation) my initial batch of both "test" and regular captures came out five-star. Olympus has a reputation for producing highest quality glass for good reason. This little guy, all-plastic construction, just gets down to work and delivers the goods without any complaints. The duo-cam design, i.e. two inner lens tubes, could be a cause for slight worry sometimes, but this 40-150mm stands unfazed: operation is smooth and could even earn the term "silky." The AF speed may not satisfy wartime photographers rushing to capture the firefight, but for our civilian, peacetime purposes this little guy is ready, willing and able. I have discovered no problems with distortion and vignetting. Minor hitch is depth-of-field (not up to scratch). But, overall, this Zuiko earns my 5 stars hands down. The price is more than right and quality is way above some much more expensive glass I use with other camera systems. Do yourself a favor: go get the 40-150mm now -- if you don't own it already!

This is an excellent zoom lens for the price. If you have a 4/3 body, then this is a must. At this price, size, weight, value and quality, you should just buy this lens. It can produce sharp images.

I have the Olympus E-PL1, and didn't want to spend alot on a micro 4/3 lens, so I opted for this 4/3 lens with adapter. I leave the adapter on the lens at all times, so it really is no more hassle to change to this lens than any other.

I own 3 DSLR's (Nikon D40, D5000 and D200), and since I really am obsessed with them, I like the fact that if I decide to get a Olympus 4/3 DSLR to add to my collection, this lens would work on it (when I remove the adapater, of course). I also like the fact that is so afforable, and takes great photos. I have looked at the micro 4/3 lenses and there is very few, and they are quite expensive.

If you have one of the Olympus Pen's (great camera by the way, takes wonderful photos, and very compact compared to my DSLR's that I find I take it with all the time), this lens would be a great investment. It includes the adpater, and if you have done price checking, the adapter (at least when I was looking), is $150+ for just it, no lens. This is only $50 more and you get a lens as well. IMHO, can't beat the price. The lens focuses quicker then the kit lens I got (14-42mm Micro 4/3), and the photos I took with this lens at 150mm and a 55-200 lens set at 150 on my Nikon D40 DSLR where very close (just diffence in colors, and the Olympus had more true colors). I have some photos posted that show it at 150mm focal length to show the detail the lens (and camera) produced. Very Happy.

If you are looking for a lens for one of the Olympus Pen cameras and don't want to break the bank, IMHO, this is a great lens.
